ARK Invest fund decided to purchase 225,937 Square, Inc. stocks worth around $50 million. Right before the big purchase, the CEO of Square, Jack Dorsey, announced that Square is developing a new open platform that will allow developers to create decentralized financial services.

Square is creating a new business (joining Seller, Cash App, & Tidal) focused on building an open developer platform with the sole goal of making it easy to create non-custodial, permissionless, and decentralized financial services. Our primary focus is #Bitcoin. Its name is TBD.
